What is next after cloud computing?

Cloud computing has been the new big thing around the world for more than a decade now. All the big large industries have moved on to cloud computing soon enough after the companies such as Oracle and Amazon have come up with management solutions for all kinds of businesses. AWS itself serves 80% of the top 500 enterprises in the world. Even the biggest government organisations and banks around the world have switched to cloud for their database management. So what is next? What can we expect from cloud computing in the coming years?

There are many technologies which now support cloud computing. Cloud shared infrastructure, containerization, and serverless architecture are to name a few. These technologies are being improvised every day to come up with products which can help the businesses to grow more efficiently. With several ideas and platforms to work from, cloud computing can be expected to build on these technologies.

Edge computing

Edge computing is a concept which can process the data produced by the internet of things. The computation is distributed to nodes known as devices. These nodes then perform the functions given to them. It plays a significant role in smart cities, cloud gaming, computing, multimedia applications and more. IoT and Edge computing are the sub-divisions of cloud computing which are getting improvised every day.



Cryptocurrency is predicted to be benefitted from cloud computing a lot. It can help in more refined money management for multinational corporations globally. Cryptocurrency can be cheap, quick, and reliable than the government currencies. Bitcoin is already a huge cryptocurrency entirely dependent on the cloud.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The internet of things is one of the important technologies which is growing at a rapid rate. Artificial Intelligence is also being improvised to learn the needs of users to come up with logical solutions. With the help of IoT and proper research, we can have the software and applications to perform most of the tasks of data storage and management.

 The growth of complexity

The companies are coming up with new ways to solve the complexities of the programs. As we keep on growing our services, we also need to understand the complexities we will face for the future of cloud computing. There are two types of complexities:

Technical Complexities

Technical complexities are increasing day by day for cloud computing with the introduction to new needs of businesses and users. But it is a cycle which keeps on running. As the new technologies arrive, people will learn new complexities and start solving them slowly until they find new technology.

Management complexities

Companies face several management issues, but they can be eliminated with the help of skilled technicians. Different devices (mobile and stable) used by employees and organisations can be used to improvise on the solution, and a new way to process the management can be discovered. All the devices can be attached to the company’s network to utilize the resources.
